READING COMPREHENSION 20 Minutes
Read the text carefully.
A FAMOUS MUSICIAN
DEVELOPED A REVOLUTIONARY
3-D PRINTER
By Tom McKay, News.Mic
A new consumer-oriented 3-D printer can make simple everyday things like mobile
phone cases and desktop decor out of something that has been used like Coca-Cola
bottles.
The new Ekocycle Cube 3D Printer, which uses filament cartridges produced
from three recycled 20 oz. PET plastic bottles, will cost around $1,200. This device
supposedly has the durability of a standard 3-D printer filament. And it’s made by
Will.i.am, 3D Systems’ chief creative officer.
According to 3D Systems, the new device is capable of printing objects up to six
cubic inches wide in high-definition 70-micron resolution. Cartridges will only come in
red, white, black and natural to start with, but will probably include more options in the
future.
Will.i.am has big plans for this model. He claims the objective is “to partner with the
most influential brands around the world and use technology, art, style and inspiration
to change an entire culture. We will make it cool to recycle, and we will make it cool to
make products using recycled materials. This is the beginning of a more sustainable
3D-printed lifestyle. Waste is only waste if we waste it.” That seems to be a little
ambitious for what’s essentially an
expensive gadget capable of
reproducing small objects. But then,
3-D printing experiments of entire
houses have already started, so the
technology is reaching its practical
potential. And it is undeniable that
the new Ekocycle does look capable
of generating some awesome objects.
For now, you’ll have to buy the
cartridges directly from Cubify, which
currently cost between $25 and $45
per kilogram. And since these are
designer, celebrity-endorsed cartridges, they won’t ever be cheap, though recycled
materials claim to be less pricey. It might be some time until you can simply insert an
old Coke bottle and pull out a few ping pong balls instead. Still we are a step closer.
